9 tv shows that ran too long
« on: October 06, 2012, 10:15:05 AM »
TV shows that went on too long According to Guyism site.


Happy Days (1974 to 1984)
X-Files (1993 to 2002)
That '70's Show (1998 to 2006)
"Two and a Half Men" (2003 to present)
"24" (2001 to 2010)
"One Tree Hill" (2003 to 2012)
"Jersey Shore" (2009 to 2012)
"Beverly Hills 90210" (1990 to 2000)
"Seventh Heaven" (1996 to 2007)


I didn't know "Two and Half Men" was around that long.


"Soul Train" (1971 to 2006), should've been derailed in 1993 when Don Cornelius left the show rather than having it on autopilot.


"King of the Hill" (1997 to 2010), a mediocre animated sitcom that should've lasted a few seasons rather than 12 years.

"The Simpsons" (1990 to present), enough said


"Jerry Springer" (1991 to present) Surprised that it's even still on, which I've noticed it while flipping channels few years ago. Google sources states that it's still running despite that TV Guide ranked it the worst tv show ever about a decade ago.

"Married With Children" (1987 to 1997), honestly the last three seasons weren't as funny

"Miami Vice" is my all time favorite show but it went one season too long.  That fifth season didn't have a really good episode in it.  It should have stopped at the end of the fourth season.  "Deliver Us From Evil" was the two part finale of the fourth season and was probably the best episode of the entire series.  The ironic thing about that fourth season is it had both the best and the worst episode of the show's run.  "Missing Hours" was so bad that I can't believe it was ever approved and "Deliver Us From Evil" was the most powerful and gripping episode they made.

"Friday Night Videos" lasted from 1983 to 2002. By the final years the show featured stand up comedy and got rid of the music in 2001. It got replaced by Carson Daly's late night talkshow. Ironically he was previously a host of "Total Request Live" on MTV.

I was aware of the show being around, but didn't really think much of it or anything. VH1 was airing music videos around midnight by that point.
